Your shirt is now ready to wear! Figure out how short you want your shirt to be, and make a mark on the outside of the shirt. If you want to, you can put the shirt on to determine the new length. Use a dressmaker's chalk or pen to draw a line all around the shirt at an even distance from the bottom edge. Spread the shirt out on a flat, even surface, right-side-out.
Use a ruler to measure up from the bottom edge of the shirt every so often. This will ensure that your shirt is the same length all the way around. Fold the hem up until the bottom edge touches the line that you drew. Keep folding your way all around the shirt. It should now be a little shorter than before. You are still folding on the outside of the shirt. Do not fold the hem on the inside.
Sew around shirt, as close to the selvage edge as you can. Use the zigzag stitch or the stretch stitch on your sewing machine. Make sure that your thread color closely matches your shirt. Fold hem back down, and tuck the excess fabric inside the shirt, away from the bottom of the hem.
Keep your shirt right-side-out. You should now see the original hem, the hem's original stitching, and your new "seam" just above it. Press the hem with an iron. Focus on the new seam you made. This will flatten it, and make the bottom of your shirt smoother.
If you'd like, you an secure the hem with sewing pins, although this is not necessary. Top stitch as close to your seam as possible. Start sewing from one of the side seams.
This will help hide the start and end of your sewing better. If you secured your hem with sewing pins, be sure to pull them out as you sew. Turn the shirt inside-out and cut the excess material away.
Try to cut as close to your stitching as you can. Discard the excess material, or save it for another project. When you are done, go back over your shirt and snip off any excess or loose threads. If you need to, put your shirt on first. You are making the shirt longer, because you will be folding the hem twice to conceal the raw edges and prevent fraying. This method may work with other non-button-up shirts made from woven material, such as tunics and peasant blouses.
Use a dressmaker's chalk or pen to draw a line all around bottom of shirt, using the mark as a guide. Spread your shirt out on a flat surface in front of you, with the inside facing you. Draw a line along the bottom edge of the shirt. Use a ruler to measure up from the bottom edge of the shirt to the line that you are drawing.
This will ensure that the line is an even distance from the bottom edge of the shirt. Most button-up shirts have a curved hem, so your line should curve as well. Align it with the shortest part of the shirt, usually at the side seams.
Fold the bottom edge of the shirt upwards, using the first line that you drew as a guide. Make sure that you are using a heat setting that is suitable for the material you are working with. This will give you a clean, professional-looking hem. The raw edges should now be concealed inside the hem. Secure the hem with sewing pins, then sew as close to top edge of hem as you can using a straight stitch. An easy way to do this is to align the edge of the sewing machine's foot with the bottom edge of the shirt.
Remove pins as you sew, and be sure to use a thread color that matches the fabric of your shirt. Remember to sew back and forth over the start and end of your sewing. If your shirt is not a button-up shirt, start sewing at one of the side seams. This will conceal the beginning and ending of your sewing better. Snip off any excess or loose bits of thread.
Get some single-fold bias tape that closely matches the color of your shirt. If you can't find a matching color, choose a neutral color that is a similar shade. For example, if you have a dark blue shirt, and you can't find any dark blue bias tape, get black bias tape.
If you have a light blue shirt, and can't find any matching bias tape, get some light grey bias tape instead. This method works great on shirts that you are sewing from scratch! Cut your shirt a little bit longer than you want it to be. How much longer you cut it depends on the width of your bias tape. Unfold one edge of the tape, and pin it to the bottom edge of your shirt. Make sure that you are pinning the right side of the bias tape to the right side of the shirt.
You will eventually be folding the bias tape inside the shirt. Sew the bias tape to your shirt using a straight stitch. Use the crease along the bottom fold of the bias tape as a guide. Fold the bias tape to the inside of your shirt.
Fold the bias tape down first, then fold it inside your shirt. The raw edges should now be under the bias tape.
The bias tape also should not be visible from the outside. The seam between the bias tape and the shirt will be right along the bottom edge of the shirt. Use a heat setting that is suitable for the material you are working with. Brand Phase Eight J by Jasper Conran 1. Sleeve length Long sleeves Please enter a price range to use this feature.
